New York, New York – May 29, 2019 /AxisWire/ High Falls Extracts is proud to announce a brand refresh. Introducing the new HIGH FALLS HEMP | NY. The re-imagined brand will be showcased at New York’s Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBExpo) May 30 – June 1 at Booth 427.

In the highly competitive CBD industry, where hundreds of CBD brands are vying for the attention of eager, curious consumers, HIGH FALLS HEMP | NY is uniquely positioned to provide New Yorkers with locally grown and produced CBD-infused products as a New York State licensed hemp grower.

During 2017, retired Wall Street executive Rick Weissman was vetting investments in the legal cannabis space and discovered the incredible wellness benefits of hemp-derived CBD. Both Rick and his wife Tricia began to use CBD to treat various issues. They experienced relief from knee, back and hip pain, additionally they started sleeping better, and were able to exercise more often. Together they founded the company and secured the NY State hemp growers license for the 2018 growing season. High Falls base of farming operations is in High Falls New York, with marketing offices in New York City.

We are excited for the launch of our new CBD brand, which will allow consumers to unlock the healing benefits of the hemp plant,” said President Rick Weissman. “High Falls products give customers a trusted local source for hemp- derived CBD, allowing them to get as close to these healing plants as possible.

As High Falls Hemp NY is being launched, the firm has entered into relationships with strategic partners who will help guide the venture to the next level:
